From leisurely theme hikes and nature trails on the valley floor, especially for families, to enjoyable alpine hikes, to adventurous summit tours, you will find everything a hiking holiday in Tyrol should include. More than 1,400 km of well-developed and well-signposted hiking trails in all degrees of difficulty and more than 150 mountain huts offer original Zillertal fare and home-made delicacies.

We show you the most beautiful places of power during a hiking holiday in the Zillertal.


The mountain world of the Zillertal has a special uniqueness - unique lakes in the high mountains that trigger a real "mental cinema". The origin is formed by the branching side valleys in the rear of the Zillertal, which were used decades ago for the construction of reservoirs. In addition to beautifully glittering lakes with crystal clear mountain water in the midst of a breathtaking panorama, there are unique structures for generating electricity for “green energy”. Excellently developed and easily accessible, these offer a fantastic starting point for excellent hikes (for every ability level, also for families) and are particularly well suited for all those who prefer solid ground underfoot to use a gondola!


The high mountain nature park of the Zillertal Alps and the mountaineering village of Ginzling within it offer an exciting experience. Those who like climbing are guaranteed to find the right thrill on the numerous via ferrata routes in the Zillertal, and in bad weather the climbing hall is only 4 km away from Hotel Kaltenbach. Another reason for a vacation in Kaltenbach. The new Schlegeis 131 via ferrata directly at the Schlegeis Dam in Ginzling is an absolute novelty and unique in Tyrol.


The love for the mountains was placed in the cradle for a long time. The great-grandfather was on the way as a mountain guide for showing the beauty of the Tirolean mountains to the people from all over the world. The alps got also for our examined mountain guide Stephan, a big passion.

He shows his guests all of that beautiful and unique places in Tirol.
